Exploring Interior Angles in Triangles

You can find a relationship between the measures of the three angles of a triangle.
An interior angle is an angle formed by two sides of a polygon with a common vertex.
So, a triangle has three interior angles.
A
Use a straightedge to draw a large triangle on a sheet
of paper and cut it out. Tear off the three corners and
rearrange the angles so their sides are adjacent and
their vertices meet at a point.

interior angles of a triangle together?

The conjecture about the sum of the interior angles of a triangle can be proven so it can be stated
as a theorem. In the proof, you will add an auxiliary line to the triangle figure. An auxiliary line
is a line that is added to a figure to aid in a proof.

Explore 2 Exploring Interior Angles in Polygons
To determine the sum of the interior angles for any polygon, you can use what you know
about the Triangle Sum Theorem by considering how many triangles there are in other
polygons. For example, by drawing the diagonal from a vertex of a quadrilateral, you can
form two triangles. Since each triangle has an angle sum of 180°, the quadrilateral must
have an angle sum of 180° + 180° = 360°.

Using Interior Angles
You can use the angle sum to determine the unknown measure of an angle of a polygon when you
know the measures of the other angles.
Polygon Angle Sum Theorem
The sum of the measures of the interior angles of a convex polygon with n sides is (n – 2)180°.

First, use the Polygon Angle Sum Theorem to find the sum of the interior angles:
n=9
(n - 2)180° = (9 - 2)180° = (7)180° = 1260°
Then solve for the unknown angle measure, x°:
125 + 130 + 172 + 98 + 200 + 102 + 140 + 135 + x = 1260
x = 158

Proving the Exterior Angle Theorem
An exterior angle is an angle formed by one side of a polygon and the extension
of an adjacent side. Exterior angles form linear pairs with the interior angles.
A remote interior angle is an interior angle that is not adjacent to the exterior angle.

Exterior angle
Follow the steps to investigate the relationship between each exterior angle
of a triangle and its remote interior angles.
Step 1 Use a straightedge to draw a triangle with angles 1, 2, and 3.
Line up your straightedge along the side opposite angle 2.
Extend the side from the vertex at angle 3. You have just
constructed an exterior angle. The exterior angle is drawn
supplementary to its adjacent interior angle.

m∠3 + m∠4 =

Make a conjecture: What can you say about the measure of the exterior angle and the
measures of its remote interior angles?

The conjecture you made in Step 2 can be formally stated as a theorem.

Its remote interior angles are ∠1 and ∠2.

because they are supplementary and make a straight angle.
By the Substitution Property of Equality, then, m∠1 + m∠2 + m∠3 = m∠ Subtracting m∠3 from each side of this equation leaves
+ m∠ .

measures of the remote interior angles.
